Dua Lipa shared some advice for dating amidst the global Covid-19 pandemic, she teamed up with James Corden to create a parody music video using her hit songs ‘Don’t Start Now’ and ‘New Rules’.
The singer appeared on the British TV personality’s ‘The Late Late Show’ recently, where they created a fun and catchy parody that applies to the world of online dating and checking your temperature before leaving the house.
The pair first started singing along to the tune of Dua’s song ‘Don’t Start Now’, where they explain how to prepare to meet someone after only having contacted them online.
Dua and James sang: “Wear a mask / Wash your hands / It’s not like you have other plans / It’s awkward / But it’s cool/ Following all these golden rules.”
The song then made a switch to an updated twist on Dua’s 2017 track ‘New Rules’, as the pair explained how to go about the new dating world with a whole bunch of new regulations to keep in mind to stay healthy and safe.
Some of the lyrics included: “There’s a new third base / It’s when you get to see their lower face / And if you hit it off / Watch out if they start to cough.”
The song continued keeping with the theme of keeping safe during the Covid-19 pandemic, with more lyrics including: “We’ve got new rules for dating / Safety is stimulating / It’s your neighbours you’re saving.”
The official YouTube account for ‘The Late Late Show with James Corden’ shared the video with the description: “Dua Lipa and James Corden update the lyrics to her hits “Don’t Start Now” and “New Rules” to lay out the struggles of dating during the coronavirus quarantine.”
